So you think your AAA membership will cover your towing bill?

Thinking twice about needing the towing coverage on your auto insurance policy? 

Some insureds think because they have a membership such AAA, AARP or any type of Motor Club coverage that they will be covered.

Unfortunately, at the scene of an accident, the police will call any tow company on call at that time.  The cops will not call AAA, AARP or your Motor Club to tow your vehicle to a safe location. 

Don't get stuck with an astronomical tow bill.  Add towing coverage to your personal auto policy.

For as low as $20.00 per year you will have peace of mind that should you have a claim your towing expense will be covered.

Towing costs vary and depend on if you are going local or out of town. AAA membership is a great service to have in case you break down but if there are no tow trucks available in your area, you may not be able to get the special rate. This is a good article and great advice. Most insurance companies offer roadside assistance with your auto insurance plan. Best to check rates with your auto insurance to ensure that you are covered all the way around. Safe Travels!

So true! We get so many calls from AAA members who are unable to use their memberships due to non-AAA towing co’s out there so what happens is regular towing companies are used and then the members are reimbursed for money they put out of pocket. More people need to know about their roadside coverage and what they have and do not have.

Yep, I always tell people that AAA is a nice to have but it definitely not the solution to ALL problems. Great advice!

Great article! I would definitely recommend the AAA membership on your insurance. You never know when you might be stranded and it can end up being a huge expense. Especially if you are out of town.

Thank you for this great article. People tend to neglect towing insurance while it’s such a tiny amount per year. As towing professionals what we see sometimes are people who are far from where they live and their car break. Then they need a long distance tow whose cost can be fairly substantial. Be responsible and go with the tow insurance.

Check everything that is in your auto insurance plan if it has coverage for the towing service.
